1916-S Ten Dollar, MS65
Lustrous, High-End Example

1916-S $10 MS65 PCGS. CAC. In the ten dollar Indian series, the 1916-S is a moderate rarity. Several decades ago it was unattainable, especially in higher grades. Then a couple of small hoards were discovered, and within a few short months the 1916-S became attainable. This issue never really circulated, and most of the survivors are lower-grade Uncs. That remains the case today, even after the hoard coins became available. Gems are predictably rare--as are all MS65s in the ten dollar series--because of the usual presence of numerous abrasions on the face of the Indian and the eagle. Nonetheless, this wonderfully clean example has no singular, mentionable abrasions. Sometimes the 1916-S can have subdued mint luster, but this piece is remarkably bright and frosted. The color is reddish-gold, with a hint of lilac in the center obverse. A rare opportunity to acquire an original, problem-free Gem example of this highly sought-after issue. Population: 12 in 65, 8 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28H7, PCGS# 8880)
